Strawberry Balsamic Salad with Basil and Feta

We don’t have a huge garden, but we did plant a lot of basil this year. Basil is my favorite herb, I love it on anything and everything. Our plants are finally taking off and I have been enjoying fresh basil wherever I can. I recently made this strawberry balsamic salad with fresh basil and feta cheese. I wasn’t sure if these flavors would work together at first, but after one bite, I was hooked.

I love adding fruit to my green salads. My strawberry spinach salad is one of my favorites. I decided to omit the greens and stick to the strawberries for this salad. I added a splash of balsamic vinegar, fresh basil, and feta cheese. The combination was delightful. The flavors are simple, but intense at the same time. If you are tired of the traditional green salads, give this strawberry balsamic salad a try. You will be eating gourmet style in a manner of minutes.

  1. Feta compliments sweet fruit so well! YUM! I bet it’d be fun to do a blueberry strawberry blend too. Hope you have a nice Thursday

  2. This is so pretty Maria. Basil is also one of my favorite herbs. If only I could learn how to grow it year round!

  3. Strawberry and balsamic go perfectly together and in my experiences feta is the perfect complement to most fruit! Great salad.

  4. So pretty and summery! I’m all about fruit & basil combos right now. Just tried peaches and basil the other day – it was divine!

  5. I had feta cheese for the first time at a Greek restaurant the other day and Liked It. Mixed with Strawberries and Balsamic would be delish.

  6. My whole life I have been the pickiest salad eater in the world. Iceberg lettuce, croutons, black olives, italian dressing. That’s it – I wouldn’t touch anything else! But after reading all your recipes about salads, I’ve finally started to open my mind ๐Ÿ™‚ In fact, I ate my very first strawberry/spinach salad a few weeks ago! And you know what?? YUM!!! I’m already looking forward to making this one!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. delicious! I just made a similar salad but with watermelon–also an excellent combo. I just love summer fruits ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Ooh that looks crazy good! I love that you skipped the greens on this one. I bet the strawberries and feta are fantastic together. Thanks for such a great idea!

  9. Had I not read this delicious-sounding recipe here, I never would have imagined using the combo of basil and strawberries. The picture makes it look incredible. I can’t wait to serve this at the end of a pasta meal, making the perfect light dessert!

    Thanks!

  10. This looks like something I can really appreciate right now, with trying to eat light and fresh now that the heat is here. Beautiful.

  11. Yum! I have a ton of basil this year too. This looks great – I have never done basil with strawberries before (altough I’ve had basil with peaches, which was awesome).

  12. Maria, I love the combination of sweet strawberries and creamy cheese. Some folks did not get the concept behind my strawberry/basil/brie omelette……but it sounds like you like the same kind of flavors ๐Ÿ™‚ xo

  13. Really lovely flavors in this, Maria. Balsamic and strawberries are a great combination, and the feta would add a great tang.

  14. I’ve been hearing quite a while about how good balsamic vinegar tastes with strawberries. This looks like the perfect thing for the heat.

  15. This looks great, Maria! We had Fattoush salad for dinner tonight. I’m going to post that next week. I will have to give these strawberries a try.

  16. I am a huge fan of basil and balsamic myself, so I can’t wait to try this! What a lovely blog. xoxo

  17. Strawberries with balsamic was one of the first things I remember my boyfriend making for me. One night after we went to dinner we went back to his apartment and were hungry for dessert. He had strawberries so he fixed them w/balsamic vinegar in champagne flutes. I love little memories like that ๐Ÿ™‚ I bet feta and basil would be great additions!

  18. Looks beautiful! Basil is one of my favorites, too… and you can’t beat it with some strawberries and Balsamic vinegar. I’m sure the feta adds a nice flavor, too!

  19. Strawberries are hands-down my absolute favorite fruit. I would love to try this salad! It looks so fresh and tasty!
